TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! LET'S FACT CHECK KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY INACCURACIES FROM 2014 STATE OF THE CITY SPEECH!!!
It's a shame that NOBODY EXCEPT KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS are willing to take the time to call out Mayor Sly James regarding the inaccuracies touted during his recent 2014 State Of The City Speech.
To wit . . .
RIGHT NOW AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS TOUT DATA CONTRADICTING KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES MISSTATEMENTS DURING HIS 2014 STATE OF THE CITY SPEECH!!!
Let's make this quick and dirty . . .
First up, the idea that the Mayor's efforts to combat rampant Kansas City Youth Violence are laughable . . . It's not in his transcript (it's in the video) but while talking about "Mayor's Nights" our city's top elected official claimed there was not a single episode of violence during his Mayor's Nights.
WRONG. LAST YEAR THE MAYOR'S "ROCK THE BLOCK" PARTY ENDED IN A BRAWL THAT SPILLED OUT INTO THE STREETS!!!
In fact, episodes of violence also plagued the Community Centers hosting pizza parties to bribe "scholars" from flash mobbing but few people cared about the ruckus because at least it wasn't on the Plaza.
Next up . . .
THE MAYOR ONCE AGAIN TOUTED A COMMON MISCONCEPTION REGARDING KCI AIRPORT BORROWING!!!
Mayor Sly James Said: "The reality is, however, that funds generated at the airport must stay there."
Fact check . . .
ABSOLUTELY INCORRECT MAYOR JAMES!!! HERE'S RESEARCH THAT PROVES AS MUCH: "Kansas City is borrowing money from the airport, with interest, to cover losses it incurred in tax abatements to things such as the Power & Light District."
One more . . .
Mayor Sly James touted the "Creative Economy" as a potential savior of this town . . . He rattled off some impressive stats BUT . . .
KANSAS CITY JOB GROWTH OR INCREASED TAX REVENUE FOR THE SO-CALLED CREATIVE ECONOMY OR THE HIGHLY TOUTED "SILICON PRAIRIE" INTERNETS BOOM HAS BEEN NON-EXISTENT!!!
Instead, the Mayor simply glanced over the fact that KCMO has collected LESS tax revenue this year and the signS of an economic boom have very few purely local indicators.
Again, it's important to call Mayor Sly on his misstatements and exceptionally sad to note that there is NOBODY else out there doing as much except our SEXY blog community.
